Check of a condition and replacement of a belt of a drive of auxiliary units

THROUGH EACH 20 000 KM (12 000 MILES) RUN

Exact adjustment of a tension of a driving belt can achieve only with use of the special Citroёn SEEM 4122-T tool. The description of a way of approximate adjustment (at the first possibility the car should be driven away on car repair shop where correctness of installation can be checked with use of the special equipment) is provided in the text of the section.

On all models one belt of a drive of auxiliary units is provided established. On the models which have not been equipped with the conditioner of air, the belt is used for a drive of the steering pump and the generator. Adjustment of a tension of a belt here is made manually. On models with To/in the same belt the compressor of the conditioner which is established from above on the generator is put in action also. In this case adjustment is carried out automatically after manual installation of a roller of an automatic natyazhitel.

Check

 PERFORMANCE ORDER

1. Prop up protivootkatny boots back wheels, поддомкратьте a front of the car and establish it on props. Remove the right forward wheel.

2. In an arch of a wheel remove from a podzor a plastic cover, having provided with that access to the right wall of the power unit.



3. Turning the engine for a bolt of a pulley of a cranked shaft by means of a face natural a suitable drive, attentively examine an auxiliary driving belt on all its length. Pay attention to defects of type of cracks, stratifications and attritions. Existence of zapolirovanny sites to shine is not admissible also. The defective or worn-out belt is subject to replacement.
4. If the condition of a belt is found satisfactory, make adjustment of effort of its tension (except equipped To/in models where the automatic natyazhitel is provided).

Removal, installation and tension adjustment (models without the air conditioner)

Removal

 PERFORMANCE ORDER

1. If yet did not do it, execute the procedures described in "Check", subitem 2 — 3.
2. Disconnect a negative wire from the battery.

3. Weaken fixing and adjusting bolts of an arm of a tension roller (one of fixing bolts is located in the central part of the roller, the second below on an arm).



4. Against the stop tighten an adjusting bolt and remove a belt from pulleys.

5. Check freedom of rotation of a tension roller.

Installation

 PERFORMANCE ORDER

1. In case of need replacement performance, track, that the new belt without fail corresponded on a standard size failed. Throw with a new belt pulleys and choose its weak point as a way of a tightening of an adjusting bolt.
2. Now it is possible to start tension adjustment (see further).

Tension adjustment

 PERFORMANCE ORDER

1. If yet did not do it, execute the procedures described in "Check", subitem 2 — 3.
2. Observance of correctness of adjustment of effort of a tension of a driving belt is guarantee of duration of term of its service. The too poorly tense belt usually starts to whistle. Remember also that excessively strong tension of a belt leads to overloads and premature wear of bearings of the generator.
3. The belt should be tense so that at a firm nazhimaniye on it a thumb on a site in the middle between the pulleys most removed from each other the size of a deflection made about 5 mm (see the remark at the beginning of the section).
4. Correction of a tension of a belt is made by rotation of an adjusting bolt. Having achieved satisfactory result, several times turn a cranked shaft, then repeat check. Strongly tighten fixing / adjusting bolts.
5. Connect a negative wire to the battery.
6. Establish into place a plastic cover of a podzor of a wing and the right forward wheel, then lower the car on the earth and tighten wheel bolts.

Removal and installation (the models equipped with the conditioner of air)


The scheme of laying of a belt of a drive of auxiliary units on the diesel models equipped To/in

1 — the Adjusting bolt
2 — a roller Regulated manually
3 — the Roller of an automatic natyazhitel

4 — the Special opening for a prodevaniye of the core fixing an arm of a roller of a natyazhitel
5 — Fixing bolts of a roller subject to manual adjustment
6 — the Bottom support of the To/in compressor

Removal

 PERFORMANCE ORDER

1. If yet did not do it, execute the procedures described in "Check", subitem 2 — 3.
2. Disconnect a negative wire from the battery.
3. Weaken adjusting/fixing bolts of an arm of a tension roller (one of fixing bolts is located in the central part of the pulley, the second - below on an arm).

4. Turn out an adjusting bolt so that there was a possibility to pass a metal core in an opening in a back part of an arm of a natyazhitel. The end of a core should be bent under 90 °. The main task is fixing of a roller of an automatic natyazhitel at belt replacement.

5. Against the stop tighten a bolt of manual adjustment.
6. Turn out a bolt from the lower part of the To/in compressor and shift aside a plastic cover.
7. Throw off a belt from pulleys (see an illustration the Scheme of laying of a belt of a drive of auxiliary units on the diesel models equipped To/in).
8. Check freedom of rotation of both tension rollers.

Installation

 PERFORMANCE ORDER

1. Make sure that the replaceable belt corresponds failed on the standard size. Throw with a new belt pulleys, having tracked correctness of hit of edges in streams.
2. Turn out a bolt of manual adjustment, having achieved such tension of a belt at which the core can be freely taken from an opening in an arm. After core extraction the demanded tension of a belt will be established automatically.
3. Tighten adjusting/fixing bolts of an arm of a tension roller (do not forget about a bolt located in the central part of a roller).
4. Screw a bolt of fastening of a plastic cover in the lower part of the To/in compressor and strongly tighten it.
5. Connect a negative wire to the battery.
6. Establish into place a plastic cover of a podzor of a wing and the right forward wheel, then lower the car on the earth and tighten wheel bolts with demanded effort.
